    Can people pronounce Ewan?

    My husband and I agree on very few names. This week is Ewan.

    Do you think the average joe will pronounce it correctly?

    Lately I have very low expectations of peoples intelligence... I'd feel terrible if my son spent his life as Ee- wahn.
    I type on an iPhone and take no responsibility for typos, auto-correction, or strange grammar in my posts.

    I don't think pronunciation would be that big of an issue. It makes me think of Ewan McGregor and I am sure a lot of people would think of him as well and know how to pronounce the name

    I have a friend who just named his son this- I think it's a great name, and I don't have any trouble with the pronunciation (but, I am smarter than your average bear)

    How is it pronounced? My first thought is YOU-wahn, but I've never been sure I've been pronouncing Ewan and Eoin right... I think it is handsome and charming.

    I polled my family, and my dad and littlest sister thought it was EE-won first, and my dad thought maybe YOU-win, too. My mom said EH-wan or EE-wan, and my grandmother said AY-win. My grandma and my parents are from all over, but we currently live in eastern-central Pennsylvania. I thought more people would say it right, but I'm guessing the pronunciation would be butchered, thanks to their pronunciations.

    Good luck!

    I know everyone here is familiar with Ewan because of Ewan McGregor but I can't speak for the states I'm afraid.
